  • What Does Service Mean to You?

    The group of ten Field Education participants arrived in a 15-passenger van to the Kelly Campus of Teton Science Schools on a warm, sunny day in mid fall. After they heard about their task and received their tools - gloves, loppers, and trash bags - they set to work with a fervor commonly reserved for those in their twenties. The only difference was that these participants, vigorously eliminating invasive thistles from several acres of Grand Teton National Park, were Road Scholars - a field group of lifelong learners with an average age of 72.

  • The Efficacy of Field-Based Education

    In the summer of 2014, I found myself a few miles up Slough Creek in Yellowstone National Park watching a sow and two grizzly bear cubs saunter through the marsh. Their presence was quiet and graceful; the group of us, 15 undergraduate students and four instructors, including me, became transfixed.
